Bowler with gifty snippets

Hello to all my wonderful crafty pals. Hope you are all well. Thank you so very much for your comments and also your best wishes for my brother. He was chuffed with his card and very touched by all your thoughts. He is now able to write well and his speech is very clear. He does get tired easily which is a good thing, as he has started to offload some of his social responsibilities and off course others have had to step into his shoes at work.
I have had a real crafty lull at present with too much going on here in bedlam. However my hat had to be done, I didn't make the hat itself. I have quite a number of hats and would love to wear them but being small and dumpy, instead of tall and elegant, well that's life isn't it, lol. At Glastonbury that doesn't matter.
I had plans to steampunk it big time, but for once reality kicked in and I knew that I would never have time to finish what I planned. So I took snippets left over from gifts that I had received from my crafty pals and also knowing that everything has to be weatherproof some shrink plastic and I hope the end result will give you all a smile.




Hugs to all, Flora

I am entering this into the snippets playground

    This is one fantastic hat, I love it, the little details you've adorned it with are wonderful, and it still has a steampunk feel to it. You must post a photo of you wearing it, hugs Kate x

  32. I do love hats Flora and this hat is stunning! Such a beautiful colour and your 'pimping' of it is fabulous! Hope your brother recovers soon.
    I too have an issue with hats - I love them but the female hats rarely ever fit my somewhat large head lol! So when I find one I hang onto it as much as possible. Sadly my last one was lost as I would love to have added loads of hand made flowers! Have a fab time at Glastonbury and I will try to remember to check it out on the tv every so often to look for that gorgeous blue bowler Karen xx
